AN UNQUIET MIND
Created in 2018. So many "characters" populate the stories we tell ourselves. They fade in and out of clear view, but the regulars in the show wait for their turn to be center stage. "An Unquiet Mind" reveals my internal struggle to control the script. The original artwork was created using a unique mixed media process blending photography and fiber arts. Elements of multiple photos are layered to produce a new and very different image. After additional digital manipulation changing colors, lines, and shapes, the image is printed with fine art archival inks on photo sensitive fabric. Layering and stitching added for emphasis are the next steps in the process, and finally three coats of varnish are applied before the work is matted and framed. The viewer sees a "painting" but there's actually photographic treasure buried in its core..The original artwork arrives matted with a 3.5"wide soft white acid free mat, and the mounting board is 3/8" thick acid free foam core. With the mat, the dimensions are 30 x 37.
